Sorry for the slow response.

Turning off checks will have minimal effect on performance (except for the
bounds checking which has approximiately a factor of two performance

The way to scale splint to larger applications is to use the library
mechanism so you only need to check the files that have changed.  See

The +single-include flag will also considerably improve performance if
most of the processing time is being spent re-processing header files.
